Trinity Fund Administration expands into Cayman

Hedge fund manager, Trinity Fund Administration has expanded by opening an office in the Cayman Islands after receiving a full Fund Administrators license from the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority.

Brad Cowdroy has been appointed Head of the new Cayman office and will have overall responsibility for local service offerings and the principal management of all North American account business. Brad joins from Goldman Sachs, where he was a Vice President in Fund Administration Services. Prior to this, Brad held positions at CIBC and PricewaterhouseCoopers in the Cayman Islands, where both roles focused in the funds area. Brad qualified as a Chartered Accountant in Sydney, Australia whilst working at BDO and has a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) degree from the University of Western Sydney, Hawkesbury.

John McCann, Managing Director of Trinity commented, “We are absolutely delighted to have someone of Brad’s calibre and experience heading up our new Cayman office and joining the Trinity group. Brad brings a wealth of experience in alternative fund servicing, as well as a broad knowledge of administrative and regulatory issues affecting our clients. We have no doubt he will make a significant contribution to the organisation’s growth moving forward”.

Trinity provides the full range of hedge fund administration services to investment groups based around the globe, which operate fund structures domiciled in a range of jurisdictions, including Ireland, Cyprus, Cayman Islands, Bahamas, Bermuda, BVI, Malta and the Channel Islands. A significant portion of its business comes from Cayman registered funds.

The firm’s expansion into Cayman comes in response to strong client demand, particularly from emerging managers, and will provide a local point for firms to access Trinity’s broad suite of services. Equally this befits a natural expansion of the business which will give Trinity better access to managers in North America.

John McCann added, “This is a major step forward in terms of Trinity’s expansion plans. We have always offered a complete suite of services to Cayman-domiciled funds and this brings us that much closer to this important component of our business”.

Trinity was also recently nominated for two awards from International Custody and Fund Administration and was voted number one in its class, within the recent prestigious annual Global Custodial Survey.
